[Samba] samba, pam, kerberos

I asked a similar question yesterday, but in my further research found 
this software:


kSamba is used for AFS translation in University of Michigan Campus 
sites. It also allows Windows workstations to authenticate and connect 
to UNIX SMB (Server Message Block) servers via a kerberos out-of-band 
negotiation. This allows users to connect without entering a SMB 
password. A version of Samba 2.0.6 modified to support AFS and kerberos 
is implemented on the server side.

I am less interested in using an AFS translator, because we now have an 
OpenAFS client for windows, but the "allows windows workstations to 
authenticate and connect to UNIX SMB server via kerberos" part sounds 
nice.  Particularly because I have an MIT KDC to deal with, and don't 
desire to leverage AD for Kerberos.  Looks as if this project is pretty 
old, anyone familiar with it?
